EPI-PENS and Severe Allergies
Students with severe food and insect sting allergies, who have EPI-PENS prescribed by their physicians, may require the assistance, in the absence of the school nurse, to administer their epi-pen. Each school has several specially trained and certified staff members who may be assigned to assist such students.
Parents must contact the school nurse to discuss their child's condition, and request a designee for the epi-pen. Documentation must be completed by the parent and the child's physician.
